Pfu DNA Polymerase

Pfu DNA polymerase is a high-fidelity, thermostable DNA polymerase with 5´→3´ DNA polymerase and 3´→5´ exonuclease (proofreading) activities. It is approximately 90kDa and isolated from Pyrococcus furiosus. Pfu DNA polymerase retains the high fidelity, sensitivity and processivity with an increased fidelity of DNA synthesis (six-fold) compared to Taq polymerase. Due to its proofreading activity, Pfu DNA Polymerase is recommended for use in PCR reactions that require high-fidelity synthesis. Pfu DNA Polymerase-generated PCR fragments are blunt-ended which can be further used in cloning. The product contains an optional 5X GC Enhancer which increases the amplification of GC rich templates up to 84%.
